This beer pours a transparent golden amber color with a massive off white head. Retention is excellent and there are many webs of lacing. Smell and taste are both the same, sweet malt bomb with a touch of citrus and pine. Not good. Feel is medium and slick. Overall not a good beer. I love Racer 5, but this is not anywhere near as good.

I can't resist grabbing a Bear Republic DIPA that I haven't seen before (seems to be the only guarantee of freshness :( ). Pours a clear medium orange with lots of fine sediment in suspension, two fingers of fluffy cream colored head settle to a thin cap and trail a haphazard sheet of delicate lace down the glass. Smell: floral, pine, a little grapefruit, a little biscuit. Taste: sugared grapefruit, orange, grainy spiciness, biscuit. Dunno, a bit of a throwback maybe? It's decent / tasty.

A-a clear golden orange color with two to three fingers worth of white head that leaves a thin layer around the top

S-caramel malt, citrus, tropical fruits, and some pine

T-taste is similar to the smell with a caramel malt backbone, citrus, tropical fruits, and a piney hop finish

M-medium body, moderate carbonation

Overall a big pine presence with a nice amount of tropical fruit sweetness, very nice
